The problem is the contact points in the phone input are worn and possibly the contact points in the charge output are also worn, there's no way to fix it without replacing the charger input and/or getting a new charger. hate to say but might just need to replace the phone

So, this phone, it turns out, is notorious for this. It has a social disorder. Yup. Let me explain- Typically it occurs when the battery gets real low or dies. Then you have no response on any buttons, power included. When plugged in, you may get the 3 blinking/flashing buttons on the bottom, and nothing else.

After that, a variety of solutions out there like taking out the battery, plugging in to PC, resetting, soft or hard boot and a variety of other methods to revive the phone often fail, according to many out there. I myself tried them all. Until I figured this out...
The guy a few posts above me has it right, but I wanted to elaborate, as his post did not help me fix the problem. It is, in many cases, the dead battery that is the problem. The solution however, is not that simple. I plugged the phone in overnight, with different cables, in computer, in wall etc. etc. etc. Nothing worked.

BUT, after trying lots of times, it then suddenly switched on. The reason? When the battery dies, it seems like phones plug for the charger gets embarrassed, and hides in a cupboard....

No, seriously, I am obviously not a tech, so I can only explain at a kindergarten level. To me, it was not making good contact, even though it was plugged in like always. Also, the phone took about 1-2 hours with the cable plugged in properly, before it started charging.

So, if all else fails, before you go hard-core, try manipulating the cable where it plugs into the phone very gently, and leave it for a few hours. Try different angles, and keep trying for a few days, plugged into wall or computer. That's what worked for me. Once the phone starts taking the charge again, it's not embarrassed anymore, and will come out the closet to

My friend, you must address this problem to your carrier. In my experience, your phone is suffering from a unreconcilable internal error.

Blinking LG Rumor Screen

Try letting the phone die by letting the battery run down. Then charge it back up and see if it will work. If not, you will have to take the phone into a repair center or store.
